Mazda Miata MX-5 Vs BMW Z4

2012 Mazda Miata MX-5 vs. the 2012 BMW Z4

The 2012 Miata MX-5, the pride of your Bradenton Mazda dealership, is proof positive that practically any driver can afford the energetic performance of a sports car without the exorbitant price tag that is usually associated with such a fine automobile. Despite being in its third generation, the MX-5 is still as desirable as it was when it first left the assembly line.

Of course, there have been plenty of sports cars that have come and gone; it might be useful to take a look at how the Mazda Miata MX-5 compares to the competition, such as BMW’s Z4.

Mazda’s Got Style and Substance at Half the Price

Mazda’s stylish new roadster is sure to impress, but it truly earns all of the accolades and praise, especially when compared to a vehicle like BMW’s 2012 Z4.

While price is not always a major concern for car buyers, it’s hard to ignore it, especially when the MX-5 comes in at the remarkably affordable MSRP of $23,470. If you had the $48,650 that the BMW will run you, you’d probably just be better off buying two MX-5s after you see how they perform.

With similar 2.0L 4-cylinder engines and 22 mpg for city driving, we’re not seeing how the BMW makes up for having double the cost, aside from branding the vehicle with their name.

When you drop the top down on your 2012 Miata, you can trust the included wind deflector to keep you and your passenger’s hair from becoming a tangled mess, a feature that the Z4 lacks.

Trust your Mazda to light up the road with the power of halogen headlights, improving visibility of both the road and your car. You’d have to find an after-market solution if you wanted the improved performance of halogen lamps on your BMW, though, as they do not even offer them as an option.
